In this paper I explore the personal narrative of Jennifer; a woman who for the\ud past ten years had been using ‘hard’ drugs. When interviewed Jennifer had\ud been ‘sentenced’ to take part in an enforced treatment programme which aimed\ud to facilitate ‘self-change’. The concept of ‘self-change’ would appear to\ud convey a particular understanding of transitions, and changes in behaviour,\ud rooted in assumptions around motivation, cognition and internal forces. In the\ud research reported here the way in which someone ‘storied’ into a narrative of\ud ‘self-change’ metaphorically represents her progress will be explored
